What is the favorite word on Valentine’s Day? The number one word is love. Then following is candy, hearts, cards, flowers, chocolates, and much more chocolate. What is love? It seems love is something you experience but cannot explain. As the Scot said, “It is better felt than telt.” Love is like the measles, it breaks out and cannot be hid. There are many definitions because there are many different kinds of love.

There is a spiritual love for God, Jesus Christ, Scriptures, church and the family of God. A self love for you. A significant love for your mate. A special love for your children, grandchildren, family and friends.  A sacred love for your country. Guys: A select love for favorite teams. What is love? Some men say, “I love pizza, football, my dog, my truck, my wife and it does not have to be in that order.” Deaf people sign, “ILY.” Some mention it, and some mean it. Some say love makes you flushed, lightheaded with a tingling feeling, Well, so does COVID.

My Valentine Message: Love Knows (John 13:35). Love Shows (I John 3:18). Love Glows (Matt. 5:16). Love Grows (2 Cor. 5:17). Love Goes (Mark 16:15). Love Flows (Phil. 1:5). Love Owes (John 15:13). Some feel that love is shown and known by giving gifts or special sacrifices. But love comes from the heart not just the hands. Real love is given not taken. Love seeks to please the other person. The best things in life are not things, but people. Don’t love things, love people. Love attacks the problem not the person. You can give without loving but you cannot love without giving. “For God so loved the world that he gave…” Love is doing right. Love is a choice.  Love endures.  Love never fails. Love sacrifices. Love creates love. Love forgives. Love appeases, aspires, attains, absolves, agrees, and always abides (1 Cor. 13:1-13). There is no substitute for love. Love is understood in all languages.

The Lord said, “A new commandment (11th) I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you” (John 13:34). As God loves us, we are to love others. You display love more with your life than your lips. Everyone loves to be loved. God’s unconditional love means there is not one thing you can do to make God love you more or make God love you less. God does not love you for what you do, but because of Who He is. God is Love (I John 4:8). Dear friend you may die unsaved, but you will not die unloved. This Valentine’s Day, also remember God loves you, you, you, and even YOU! Happy Valentine’s Day.
